Oh, for the love of roses!
Apparently, along with the recent revelation that I’m more than willing to “Mrs. Robinson” Nick Jonas, I’ve also realized that I’m going to need more makeup storage space for MOAR RBR BLUSHES.
Are you familiar with RBR’s $29 Original Skin Blush For Love of Roses powder blushes from their permanent line?
Um…kinda phenomenal! Like, so phenomenal that they make Chanel Malice shake in its go-go boots. Like, you could go months before wanting to wear anything else.
I’d never tried them before, but I finally got around to it this week, and I’m so glad I did.
I mean, yeah, if you’re going for ’80s-style unblended blush racing stripes down the sides of your face, these probably aren’t the best blushes for that; however, if you want natural-looking cheeks to go with your Victoria’s Secret angel wings and hair, you’ve come to the right place.
The name “Original Skin” is totally apt. Think hot cheeks after boom-chicka-wah-wah, if you know what I’m sayin’.
Come on, don’t make me spell it out. 🙂 This is a family show.
The way these fine powders bind to skin is almost hypnotic. They cling so close that it’s hard to tell where your skin begins and the powder ends. At first glance, you don’t even realize it’s there, and then you do and you’re like YES.
And the flawless finishes will have people wondering if homegirl actually wakes up like that. The mattes border on satins (so they aren’t too stark), and the sheens lovingly do not invite all of the pores in the neighborhood out to play.
The Original Skin Blush for Love of Roses blushes are available in five shades. Orpheline, a warm strawberry, has a hint of a sheen. She loves warm-toned medium skin.
Habanera, a slightly rosy terra cotta, is another one to consider if you like warm shades (also good for medium skin tones).
Lighter lovelies might like cool-toned rosy mauve Gracilis or Starina, a pale coral, while Delicata, the fifth shade, is a nude rosy beige with hints of peach that should work well for most everyone.
